(gavel bangs) >> on this vote the yeas are 246... >> narrator: but obama's party controlled the congress. >> the conference report is adopted. >> narrator: and without a single republican vote in the house, the stimulus bill passed. >> so much for the president's charm feive. todait was all partisan rancor and name calling. >> not one republican voted for it, turning a cold shoulder to the president's appeal for bipartisan support. >> obama learns that being president is about understanding the constraints and, frankly, working the system rather than c

citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people now estimated to be living in the united states. but first a border security would be beefed up and the government would improve its tracking of current visa holders. the senators also want to grant more green cards to highly educated immigrants and would allow more lower-skilled workers into the country especially for agricultural purposes. finally, the agreement calls for an effective verification system to crack down on employers who hire workers in the country illegally. in 2006 and 2007, similar efforts to fix the nation's patchwork of immigration laws failed under both republican and democratically controlled congresses but democratic senator chuck sheumer of new york said this time will be different. >> the politics on this issue have been turn upsidedown. for the first time ever there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> ifill: indeed this new effort comes on the heels of last year's election in which president obama won seven of every ten hispanic votes in his victory over republican mitt romney. senator john mccain of arizona said that's the key reason his party must now get on board. >> elections. elections. the r
